Whether we like love it or loathe it, Autumn has arrived as I'm sure I've mentioned many a time in my posts. For me, there's no complaining. I adore the rich, jewel -like deep tones, my favourite of which is burgundy. It seems I'm not the only one either, as the magazine behind the images is actually Instyle, a great page with some ideas to set your head spinning about one of the most predominant colours of the season. Therefore, it was only fitting to share my new discovered love for a more adventurous eye combination.
As Mac had a short time period before Halloween of free delivery, I got my desperate mits on Cranberry, the most beautiful shade of shimmering...well... cranberry I suppose! Although most are frightened such colours will cause the eye area to look sore, I've found no problem at all with it. I would say that if you're worried about that, line your waterline and upper lashline with either black or brown and admire the end result.
A nice base is Prune Nocturne, one of the new cream eyeshadows from Bourjois. If you don't want to dive in at the deep end, and rather just dip your little toe into the water, this is the one to go for. Due to it being more of a brown/plum berry base it becomes more wearable; even better for those of you who are just wanting to subtly experiment with a minute amount of colour (me).
The best part? Popping them on together. My next stop is navy... now that's how you embrace Autumn.
